- People who have had close contact (within 6 feet for a
total of 15 minutes or more) with someone with confirmed COVID-19.
- People who have taken part in activities that put them at higher risk for COVID-19 because they cannot socially distance as needed, such as travel, attending large social or mass
gatherings, or being in crowded indoor settings.
- People who have been asked or referred to get testing by their healthcare provider, local or state health department.
If you do get tested, you should self-quarantine/isolate at home pending test results and follow the advice of your health care provider or a public health professional. Please click this link to view the Green River District Health Department's
